Dear ISU Alumni, Faculty and Friends,
As the year of our 25th Anniversary comes to a close, and celebrations of our achievements subside, I hope you will take the time to consider the important role you play in the continuing success of ISU and join us in supporting our students and programs with a generous gift to the Annual Scholarship Campaign.
Regardless of your involvement, be it as a student, participant, visiting lecturer, faculty member or supporter, I know that your affiliation with ISU has provided many positive experiences for you, even perhaps played a role in changing your life. I know for me, SSP93 was a life-changing event.
ISU needs your help, now, to support the many qualified applicants hoping to access ISU’s unique programs to hone their skills and advance their careers. Most of us benefitted from the earlier generosity of donors and sponsors who made possible financial aid funds enabling us to attend ISU.
Without further lofty phrases and accolades, I am simply asking that you stop what you are doing, go to the ISU Online Donation web page, click on ISU Annual Fund and send a donation now! (Or download a Pledge Form and send it back to ISU). No gift is too small. We welcome your support at whatever level you can afford. A letter acknowledging your tax deductible gift* and thanking you for your participation in this campaign will follow.
Thank you for your consideration of my request. It means a great deal to all of us at ISU.
With best regards,
Angie Bukley, SSP93
Dean & Vice President for Academic Affairs
